What is Gray Davis going to be for Halloween?
Unemployed." (Jay Leno)

New York had a parade Monday honoring Christopher Columbus. He was the
first Democrat. He left not knowing where he was going, arrived not knowing
where he was, went home not knowing where he had been, and he did it all on
government money. (Argus Hamilton)

Recently a new cookbook written by former president Clinton came out. Think
about this for a second, folks: a couple of years ago did you ever think,

be writing a cookbook and Martha Stewart would be the target of an ethics
probe? (Jay Leno)

Today at a speech in New Hampshire, President Bush defended the war in Iraq
saying, "I was not about to leave the security of American people in the
hands of madman." So, I guess he's firing Donald Rumsfeld. (Jay Leno)

Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. However, today they did find several
Iraqi women who claim they were fondled by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the
1970s. (Jay Leno)

The Senate debated oil drilling in Alaska Tuesday for fear the nation is
low on crude reserves. How silly. Anyone who thought the country was low on
crude learned Thursday that Kobe Bryant makes Arnold Schwarzenegger look
like Ashley Wilkes. (Argus Hamilton)

Wizened political veteran Warren Beatty, not newcomer Arnold
Schwarzenegger, was supposed to have been the Hollywood star to get himself
elected to high office. "I think Warren would have run for governor, but

you something, if Bush does the same thing to Castro he did to Saddam and
Osama, this guy’s got a job for life. (Jay Leno)

Management level employees can be found in sackers’ usual locations. Out
back taking a smoke. (Alan Ray)

takes to be governor. (Argus Hamilton)

Group sex is great, but you haven't lived until you've screwed an entire
state. (Chris White)

In his first news conference after being elected governor of California,
Arnold Schwarzenegger promised to clean house in Sacramento. He also
threatened to molest the energy crisis, and date rape the deficit. (Tina Fey)

On the Christian Broadcasting Network, Pat Robertson said the State
Department should be blown up with nuclear bombs. I guess he just asked
himself: What Would Jesus Do? (Jay Leno)

The Food and Drug Administration approved a video-camera pill Wednesday.
"Swallow-Cam," as some call it, will transmit pictures of your digestive
system. Wow, the Food Network MUST be desperate for new program ideas.

from the Liberty Bell. (Argus Hamilton)

A new study shows the nation's imprisoned population is rising to an
all–time high, with 1 in every 37 Americans behind bars ... so THAT'S how

Arnold Schwarzenegger will probably be the keynote speaker at the
Republican National Convention, which is very smart, because after

Limbaugh costume? The sack is filled by his housekeeper. (Alan Ray)

Dennis Miller was asked by conservatives to run for the U.S. Senate and
Will Smith said Monday he wants to be president. It's becoming a cottage
industry. By next year, street vendors in Beverly Hills will be selling
Maps to the Candidates' Homes. (Argus Hamilton)

Arnold Schwarzenegger said he will seek financial help from Washington. The
bad news is that we are stuck in line behind Iraq. (Jay Leno)

Arnold announced today how he intends to correct the California budget
problem -- he'll use the Planet Hollywood model -- you know -- plaster
the state with billboards of movie stars and then double the price on
everything (Robert Dvorak).

Governor Jeb Bush thanked Cubs fan Steve Bartman for grabbing at a foul fly
ball. It prevented an out and ignited a Florida rally. In California, we
have two words for guys who can't keep their hands to themselves — Governor
Schwarzenegger. (Argus Hamilton)

Bud Selig is considering letting Pete Rose back into baseball. Reaction
around the game is mixed. Current players favor it. Ted Williams was
reportedly very cool on the idea. (Alan Ray)

Kobe Bryant's lawyers revealed his accuser had DNA on her underwear
belonging to somebody besides Kobe. It doesn't prove anything. It just
shows that Monica Lewinsky has moved beyond handbags and started selling
Oval Office mementos on the Internet (Argus Hamilton)

Bush's approval rating has risen to 56%, the stock market is up, the
economy is doing better. See, that's the good thing about these baseball
playoffs. Bush is so distracted, he can't screw anything up. (Jay Leno)

Ozzy Osbourne has scrapped his European tour because of a nervous tremor.
Doctors recommend heavy medication. He has checked himself into Rush
Limbaugh’s house. (Alan Ray)

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that the Justice Department can't punish
doctors who recommend marijuana to sick patients. Enforcement varies widely
nationwide. You know you live in San Francisco if you cannot remember
whether or not pot is illegal. (Argus Hamilton)

COLUMBUS DAY PUNS

The teacher asked her fifth-grade class, "How was Columbus treated when he
returned from his third voyage?"One student said, "Lots of people met him

the teacher's desk and showed her where it read, "Columbus received a cool
reception when he returned from his third voyage."(Archives)

Where did Columbus first land in America?
On his feet! (Archives)

Christopher Columbus will be given a parade in New York today. He was the
first Democrat. He left not knowing where he was going, he arrived not
knowing where he was, he went home not knowing where he'd been, and he did
it all on government money. (Argus Hamilton)

We all know that Columbus believed the world was round when others believed
it was flat and that if you traveled far enough you would go over the edge.
We also know that Columbus reached what we now know as America. While there
are still a few who believe Columbus returned to Spain and told Queen
Isabella that he discovered a new world, most believe he had told her he
had reached India. Recently documents written by Queen Isabella’s official
scribe were uncovered revealing what olumbus actually said on returning
from his first voyage. His first words were, “I’ll bet I’m the first man
who ever got nineteen hundred miles on a galleon.” (Archives)
